Difference between blocking and muting
The networks provides two ways on how you can limit the interaction with other users and the visibility of their contributions: Blocking and muting.
| Blocking || Muting |
|Mutually limits the freedom of interaction between users as follows: ||Unilaterally hides contents of other users. |
- Both users are not able to comment the posts of the other.
- Both users don't get any notifications of the other.
- If user A has blocked user B and someone mentions user B in a comment of user A's post, then user B doesn't get any notification.
See this FAQ.
- The posts of the muted user don't appear neither on the post overview nor in the search results.
Both ways can be combined.
